The short answer Jesus!
The long one is too long to tell in a blog post (even for me) but I will sum it all up by telling the following true story.
A few years ago when I was in the middle of a fourteen day fast, I was going through a rough patch and was feeling kind of unloved. So I decided to take a walk and listen to worship music.
When I started my walk there was a light wind, nothing much, I could barely feel it.
When I was almost home I said something like “God I know that you love me but I really just need a hug, couldn’t you just give me a hug.”
Right then the wind came crashing upon me from every side. I spread my arms open wide and God just hit me from the front, back, side, top, and bottom with powerful gusts of wind.
That in itself is a beautiful thing.
But what is really awesome is the fact that at the EXACT moment the first gust hit me, I was listening to these exact lyrics were playing in my ears
His love’s like a hurricane
I am the tree
Oh How He Love Us
Oh How He Loves us
That is why I am willing to risk everything, risk my future and my children’s
Because God is not distant!!!
God hears our prayers!!!
God loves us passionately!!!!
Because I have asked God to redirect my steps and He hasn’t, because God keeps opening doors, because God loves me, I know that I can trust Him.
I can trust him with my future and my children’s future.
So can you!!!
Because He is no respecter of persons.
Believe Him to direct you steps, and then start stepping and you will be amazed at where you end up!!
I know I am!
